Dear Sir

Re: Holiday request

I would like to request for some time off for a holiday from January 30 to February 5, 2011.

I was not able to take any time off during the December holiday season as I was heavily involved in an important project. The project finished off well and the testing of the systems was proven successful by the end of last month.

Hence, I feel that this would be a good time for me to take a break before the next major project comes on. I have had not taken any time off since February 2010.

I hope that you will consider my request favorably and I look forward to your quick reply to facilitate my planning.

Thank you.

Yours sincerely,

Martha
